homes they can't afford does not end well, as we can see. the government subsidy started with tax credit that people get from housing. then we started on a new path like the community reinvestment act, which forced banks to get into the low income high risk lending business and banks have no business being in that business because we are letting other people money. the banks should not be in a high-risk lending system. the really big event actually happened in september 1999. bill clinton who was president at the time made it mandatory, he said, okay, freddie mac and fannie mae. you have to have at least half your loans and affordable housing. that was a very dramatic announcement because of the size of fannie and freddie. an article in "the new york times" identified the involvement in this issue. freddie and fannie were so vague that there is no way they can meet this goal without reducing lending standards. so if they had achieved that goal, they would be taking so much risk and that could happen and they are so big that they could take out the whole u.s. financial system. nine years

of it punitive we all know about the medicare tax it's gone up significantly, right now 20 going up to 20% and 30% of the tax burden goes into subsidizing health care. 10% going to 15% of the tax burden was to finance medicaid. the point is when you add all of this out it is a flood of money. why does it matter? the reason that it matters as our health care system is so inefficient that the average person not only could afford their health care but would save an enormous amount of money if we transferred this back to them. we are not going to do it, but it enormously changes your perspective on what is happening. now a lot of you may be thinking what about those who can't afford it and don't have a job? somewhere around $850 million on subsidizing medicare and medicaid. that's what we spent last year. you could give 100 million americans $8,500 a year with that money to feed a family of four, you give it to them every year of their life. so with that you could take the current system, the current spending, including everybody and have a complete direct system. we aren't going to do it but we coul

that you get it usually comes out around tax time or after tax time. i mean tell us about the bonus and how that works. >> guest: right. well, the bonus that we get is a result of pounding lobsters or when we catch lobsters in september and the price is very low, we have a real natural pound it's called. it's a salt water area where you can put lobsters to store while the price is low and then take them back out in the winter, let's say february or march when the prices is back up, when it's back up high, and the extra money or the profit is divvied up among fishermen as the bonus. c-span: and at a given time in a normal year, how big a bonus is there? >> guest: anywhere since i've been back to the island, we've had anywhere from a 50-cent per pound bonus to a 75-cent per pound bonus, and it's a bonus not on what you put into the lobster pound yourself but it's a bonus on what you have sold to the co-op all season. so if you catch 10,000 pounds for the season, you're paid on your 10,000 pounds. if it's 50 cents, you get $5,000. c-span: and when does that check usually come to you? >> guest:

running the country, policymakers to believe and structural reforms, privatizations, tax reforms, budget cuts, labour mobility, and they need to be competitive both internally and externally. if you do not have governments with plants like that, you're not going to get them back to growth anytime soon. so it is very, very important that you can do that. the point is the private sector, and that think this is a problem because at the beginning there was no interest in the case of greece and in some of these other countries and involving the private sector. and, in fact, it was only when things get so bad that greece called upon the private sector with the troika, which as you know, is the european union, the european central bank, ecb, and the international monetary fund to really get the private sector involved, and there you had a big hair cut. if it had been dealt with earlier would not have been and is bad and now they have to do another debt buyback problem, an operation which is still a problem. so i think the idea of giving the private sector involved early on, and we showed this b

we support in the next election? a tax and spend democrat or a war and spend liberal. what about the item? is it complete the dead? the supreme court said it can't be unilaterally done but can it be bilateral begun because we have to shift from expenditure on defense to expenditure on domestic affairs. the line-item veto was useful. >> quick answer to your question is we will see, but first, if the new president makes this a priority, the congressman will respond to that. something the new president thinks is important. there becomes article 1 article 2 issue in the constitution as you all know. the prerogatives of congress -- that is always the rub and the tension in this. most governors have a line-item veto power and they use it effectively but this is a different ball game. i have never been completely sold on the line-item veto, partly because wood is so critical about our government and has worked so well and so astounding and so brilliant, 50 years ago, to figure this all-out, i don't think you ever want to give a president so much power or so much authority no matter who

to acquire some of the stuff. traditional people, when they see steel axes, they will steal taxes instead of stone axes because there are sharper and hold their edge lager. they want matches rather than fire, they want clothing, manufacture clothing instead of shipping. they won umbrellas. one medicine. one education and opportunities for the kids. so throughout the world traditional societies are bugs -- likely to acquire some things from modern outside society, but this acquisition is selective. and the important thing is that traditional society should be free to make their own choice rather than be dragged into the modern world against their will, notably by being exterminated, driven off their lands. >> this gentleman. >> i have a huge voice. one thing that i noted when i lived in hawaii for 20 years is that many, many grandparents were raising their children, their children's children -- excuse me, they're grandchildren , in effect. and my mother was 42 when she had us, which was almost end impossibly unfashionable age. and i noted the same to things, that the older the parent was i
